ceph.stage.deploy hanging

SUSE Enterprise Storage 5


After a disk failure the new disk cannot be deployed because 'deepsea stage run ceph.stage.deploy' hangs.
Command 'salt '*' cephprocesses.check results=True' shows no OSDs on the affected node despite multiple OSD processes running there.


1. Remove an empty OSD directory from /var/lib/ceph/osd/ceph-$OSD on minion.

2. Remove OSD details and partitions from /etc/salt/grains on minion.

3. Run ceph.stage.deploy again.


Issue is caused by leftovers on minion node after failed OSD removal procedure. Engineering is informed and process of OSD removal is reworked to avoid similar situation in the future.
